Day 1

Good Day Prayer Eagles,

When doing these prayers below please keep your eyes open and say them out loud.  You do not want satan accusing you of being asleep when doing them.

Do all the prayers even if you have not been involved in these things as we are also breaking the sins of the generations before us.

In the name of Jesus Christ, I confess all the sins of my forefathers, and by the redemptive blood of Jesus, I now break the power of every curse passed down to me through my ancestral line. I confess and repent of each and every sin that I have committed, known or unknown, and accept Christ’s forgiveness. He has redeemed me from the curse of the law. I choose the blessing and reject the curse. In the name of my Lord Jesus Christ, I break the power of every evil curse spoken against me. I cancel the force of every prediction spoken about me, whether intentionally or carelessly, that was not according to God’s promised blessings. I bless those who have cursed me. I forgive each person who has ever wronged me or spoken evil of me. In the name of Jesus Christ, I command every evil spirit of curse to leave me now.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I now renounce, break and loose myself from all demonic subjection to my mother, my father, my grandparents and any other human beings, living or dead, who have dominated and controlled me in any way. I thank You, Lord, for setting me free.

In the name of Jesus Christ, I now rebuke, break and loose myself, and my family, from any and all evil curses operating through charms, vexes, hexes, spells, omens, jinxes, psychic powers, mind control, bewitchment’s, witchcraft or sorcery, that have been put upon me through any person, or from any cult or occult source. I command all such demonic powers to leave me in the name of Jesus Christ. I am the head and not the tail. I am above and not beneath.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I now renounce, break and loose myself from all demonic soul ties formed through sinful sexual encounters (Note: Be as specific as possible when breaking soul ties. Name each sexual partner and verbally renounce the tie with each one.) or soul ties formed through god parents or from soul ties formed with spiritual fathers or spiritual mothers that are not from God.  I accept God’s forgiveness for each one. In the name of Jesus Christ, I command all demons associated with perverse soul ties to go.

I break all soul ties with: Animals – formed through inordinate affection for animals; Family members – where there is control and possessiveness; Corrupt and depraved companions who have influenced me in perverse ways; The dead – from prolonged mourning over deceased loved-ones; and Church related soul ties where I have been a part of church cliques, idolized a pastor or church leader above Christ, or been controlled by anyone in leadership.

I come to you, Jesus Christ, as my Deliverer. You know all my problems – the things that bind me, that torment me, that defile and harass me. I now loose myself from every dark spirit, from every evil influence, from every satanic bondage, from every spirit in me that is not the Spirit of God, and I command all such spirits to leave me now, in the name Jesus Christ. I now invite the Holy Spirit to fill me and guide me. I now confess that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, redeemed, cleansed and sanctified by the blood of Jesus. Therefore, Satan has no place in me, and no power over me, through the blood of Jesus.  Amen

Preparation Day 2

Psalm 51 New King James Version (NKJV)‌

  • Psalm 51v10

A Prayer of Repentance

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David when Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.

51 Have mercy upon me, O God,
According to Your lovingkindness;
According to the multitude of Your tender mercies,
Blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.

3 For I acknowledge my transgressions,
And my sin is always before me.
4 Against You, You only, have I sinned,
And done this evil in Your sight—
That You may be found just [a]when You speak,
And blameless when You judge.

5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
And in sin my mother conceived me.
6 Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,
And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.

7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me hear joy and gladness,
That the bones You have broken may rejoice.
9 Hide Your face from my sins,
And blot out all my iniquities.

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me away from Your presence,
And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.

12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.
13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,
And sinners shall be converted to You.

14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God,
The God of my salvation,
And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
15 O Lord, open my lips,
And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
16 For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it;
You do not delight in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
A broken and a contrite heart—
These, O God, You will not despise.

18 Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion;
Build the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then You shall be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness,
With burnt offering and whole burnt offering;
Then they shall offer bulls on Your altar.

Who is the Church?

When answering this Question, I think we need to look at the widely accepted opinion;

 

God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. 25 Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.  Acts 17:24-25

 

We also read in the Bible

 

Then news of these things came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent out Barnabas to go as far as Antioch.  Acts 11:22

 

Saul was making havoc of the church by persecuting God’s people.  It is clear from the scriptural verse below that Saul did not drag a building like a Temple to prison.

 

Now Saul was consenting to his death.

At that time a great persecution arose against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles. And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.

As for Saul, he made havoc of the church, entering every house, and dragging off men and women, committing them to prison.

Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word.  Acts 8:1-4 

 

We read of the church in the house of Priscilla and Aquilla

 

Greet Priscilla and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus, who risked their own necks for my life, to whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles. Likewise greet the church that is in their house.

Greet my beloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia to Christ.  Romans 16:3-5 

 

Paul gathering the church together at Antioch.

 

Now when they had come and gathered the church together, they reported all that God had done with them, and that He had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles. Acts 14:27  

 

Clearly from the verse above we can see that the church is not a building.  Is it possible to gather buildings together?

Membership in the church is determined by neither people, preacher nor priest or any other 5 fold ministry but by the Lord.

 

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,   Ephesians 4:11-12

 

…praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.  Acts 2:47 

 

So clearly from the verse above you cannot join.

 

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.  Romans 1:16 

 

Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,  1 Corinthians 15:1-4

 

Those who are “the church” are perfectly organized, having Christ as their “head” and a position that is God-ordained.

 

And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.  Ephesians 1:22-23 

 

But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased.  1 Corinthians 12:18 

 

What spiritual ignorance is shown by any of these who believe they need a human “organizer” or that they can improve upon the work of the infinitely wise and powerful God.

 

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,  Ephesians 4:11 

 

They limit and frustrate the work of these men and women when they “call” or “appoint” pastors or teachers of their choice or when a pastor suddenly decides he is now a prophet or an apostle or a bishop. 

Recently, there has been a lot of conflict concerning this matter. As a messenger of the Most High God, I have been instructed to sound the trumpet, and engage the enemy whose goal is to destroy and erase this from the plan of God in the body of Christ! I am not here to entice you with man’s wisdom, but rather to call this nation and the church to repentance!

Organizations have tried to silence the ordinances of God, to pursue their own agendas, and for that, they will face Godly judgement just as I will be judged for my mistakes.

I pray that all will come in humbleness before God, ask God to forgive them and guide them into the truth, His truth.

 

The fivefold ministry is one of the greatest keys to any successful ministry. The ministries, who do not operate in all five, are damaging the growth of the body of Christ!

A ministry who does not acknowledge the entire Fivefold ministry and who does not want Teachers, Evangelists, Prophets and Apostles in their ministry have one or more of the following hidden agendas:

  • They don’t understand each one of these offices.
  • Control issues within the ministry.  The pastor might even have the spirit of Diotrephes.  

When a ministry has the fivefold ministry in operation, that organizations are no longer are in control. The Pastors are no longer in control. God is in control!

 

I am briefly going to explain each office.

 

In Ephesians 4:11, each one of these offices is separated by semi-colons. Because each office separated means that it is exclusive from the others. Notice that Pastors and Teachers are together? Why? Pastors and Teachers belong together. No man is fit to be a Pastor who cannot also teach, and the Teacher needs the knowledge which Pastoral experience gives.

 

Ephesians 4:12 says “For the perfecting of the saints…” This does not mean that the saints cannot reach perfection unless there is a fivefold ministry in the church?  “For the work of the ministry…” This is to perfect the saints so that they can work in the ministry that they’ve been called in!  “For the edifying (building) of the body of Christ;”

 

Apostles pioneer churches (remember who is the church). They build them from the ground up. They establish and restore them. They have special inspiration from God and are given supreme authority over the churches (this is why denominations have ruled them out). True Apostles are accredited by signs and miracles following their ministry (self-proclaimed “Apostles” do not), Apostles have an unlimited commission to preach the Gospel. Apostles oversee and are responsible for every church that they have pioneered.  Now bear in mind that you are the church and not the building you worship in.  God will take an Apostle through all the other offices because they must know and understand what these offices are about in order to teach the body of Christ.  To life a holy life is very important to the Apostle appointed by God, as they never want to disappoint God.

 

God will use Apostles (male and female) and Prophets (male and female) to reveal or confirm a person’s calling.

 

To the churches that claim that there cannot be any apostles today.  Think again.  The Apostle Paul was an Apostle almost 20 years after Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven.

 

to which I was appointed a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.  2 Timothy 1:11

 

Prophets (male and female) are called by God alone. Prophets work with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

 

Prophets are somewhat on a planet of their own. They are eccentric, somewhat weird to church and society, and are oftentimes abandoned by man because of their being misunderstood by mainstream religious groups.

True Prophets of God are dealt with by God and God alone. They are oftentimes trained in ministry alone, with some guidance by other true Prophets or Apostles appointed by God over them.

False “Prophets” are mainly ‘soothsayers”, often known as a ‘slithering tongued serpent’, tickling the ears to gain your trust. This world is full of them!

True Prophets of God can operate as an Evangelist, Pastor or Teacher. Prophets are also followed by signs and miracles when directed by God to do so. They only speak the Word of God and are assisted by God to carry out the Prophet’s assignment.

A true Prophet of God lives a very holy life.

Apostles and Prophets oftentimes walk together. They are both over the Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher.

The Evangelist draws the crowds and all that matters to them is to save the lost souls. Evangelists travel, and are constantly on the road, except for the time of ‘refreshing’ or encouragement from other ministries within the body of Christ. The Evangelist works hand-in-hand with the Pastor and Teacher. 

A Pastors main job is to “shepherd” the flock.  A true pastor will visit his congregation, do hospital visits.  His “sheep” is very important to him. If you have ever watched the series 7TH Heaven.  Eric Camden, the pastor in this series shows all the qualities of a true pastor.  A pastor will also do a lot of Bible study in order to teach his congregation.

PS:  Your pastors title might be reverend, minister, priest etc.

Teachers teach foundational truths of the Word of God, building the foundation of our faith.  Joyce Meyer is an excellent example of a true teacher.

Once again, this is the order of God:

  1. Apostles
  2. Prophets
  3. Evangelists
  4. Pastors
  5. Teachers

Organizations are formed by man, and not God

Organizations have become man-made empires that have been designed to suppress (control) people

As long as Apostles and Prophets are silenced, then this puts the Pastor the head of the church and not Christ.

This is not about the “power” or position of the calling itself, because the ‘higher’ the calling, the higher the price, the heavier the burden, and the more the sacrifice. That’s just the way it is, trust me! It’s about a true ministry. A ministry without spot or blemish. A ministry that doesn’t experience defeat. A ministry with supernatural POWER! A ministry that is truly called by God Almighty.

Sometimes God takes you through the different callings to teach you.  This happens with prophets and apostles.  God has taken me through all the callings, some longer than others to teach me so that I will be able to teach others.

 

Just in case you’ve wondered.  A Bishop is just an elder over elders.

 

This is the only church with divine origin and blessing. It alone can fulfil this prayer of the Lord Jesus Christ for all who believe on Him:

 

that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.  John 17:21 

 

All divisions (denominations and sects) show sinful disregard for the will of God and of the “unity of the Spirit” See scripture below.

 

Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.  1 Corinthians 1:10 

 

And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men? For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not carnal?  1 Corinthians 3:1-4 

 

Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.  1 Corinthians 3:16-17

 

I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.  Ephesians 4:1-6 

 

I think that you will now agree with me that we are the church not the building that we worship in. The church is also called the body of Christ.  Unfortunately, the body of Christ is very sick as Christians are working against each other and not together as one body.  The reason for this is pride.  The pastor became too proud and greedy and because of this, souls are being lost.

 

The church is made of people all over the world who have discovered the love of God as demonstrated by Jesus Christ.  So if you read your bible and worship God with a few friends in your back garden or in a field, you and your friends are the church fellowshipping together.

Water Baptism

  • baptism-w-dove

The English word “Baptism” comes from the Greek word “Baptizo”, which means to, dip under, immerse, and whelm that is, to cover wholly with fluid. So this cannot include sprinkling a few drops of water on a baby’s forehead.

 

 

You need to get baptised because Jesus was baptised and He left an example for us to follow in His steps.

 

John Baptizes Jesus

 

13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him. 14 And John tried to prevent Him, saying, “I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?”

 

15 But Jesus answered and said to him, “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he allowed Him.

 

16 When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. 17 And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

 

Matthew 3:13-17

 

Jesus was baptised to “fulfil” or “complete” all righteousness by being obedient to His Father’s (God) will. He was not baptised because He was a forgiven sinner, for He had no sin. He was always righteous. If Jesus was not baptised, He would have disobeyed His Father’s will and would no longer have been righteous.

Obedience pleases God and brings the blessing of God.

 

21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

2 Corinthians 5:21

 

 

 

Christians are also righteous and so like Christ are baptised to fulfil or complete all righteousness, by an act of obedience.

 

 

It is a commandment of God in scripture and children of God desire to obey God.

 

 

15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.

 

Mark 16:15-16

 

 

Do you love God? Look what the Bible tells us.

 

 

 

15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments.

 

John 14:15

 

 

Are there any special conditions you need to fulfil before you can be baptised?

 

 

35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him. 36 Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, “See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?”

 

37 Then Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.”

 

And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”

 

38 So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him. 39 Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing.

 

Acts 8:35-39

 

 

 

When the Ethiopian eunuch asked the evangelist Phillip:  “What hinders me from being baptized?” “

 

 

The Evangelist answered and said:  “If you believe with all your heart, you may.”

 

 

And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”

 

 

9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

 

Romans 10:9

 

Once you are saved, you are ready for baptism.

There is no special spiritual level you have to reach to prepare yourself for baptism. When you are saved you are re-born with God’s righteousness and there is nothing else you can do to prepare yourself for baptism.

 

Water baptism is a symbolic burial, by which the new born again Christian publicly declares they have died, and are now beginning a new life, in Christ.

 

Water baptism outwardly demonstrates what has happened inwardly. Water baptism helps you to grasp the reality of the spiritual truth that the old “you” has died.

 

Water baptism is only as important as the person being baptized believes it to be. Water baptism is their confession, and a public commitment.

 

You die to the old you when you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.  So some people see baptism as a burial to that old self. When they come out from under the water they come out as a new person.

But unless the person really believes they died, there is no need for a burial.

 

It is not something you do to impress God or your pastor, but something to impress on our mind what happened to us inwardly. Water baptism is for your benefit not God’s.

 

 

 

38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

 

Acts 2:38

 

 

 

Peter is not giving a new way for water baptism but is instructing these disciples in the authority of the name of Jesus Christ that since they have repented and been forgiven of their sins, they must now obey God and get baptised.

 

 

41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.

 

Acts 2:41

 

 

 

Some Christians have struggled to receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit, because in their hearts they have determined to disobey God and not get baptised by immersion.

47 “Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” 48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then they asked him to stay a few days.

 

Acts 10:47-48

 

 

 

Peter used his authority in the name of Jesus Christ to order them to be baptised and was not giving new instructions for water baptism.

 

 

We baptize people through our authority in Jesus Christ in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

 

 

Why was Jesus baptized in water? He was, and is, our pattern. And, in a sense, He was, at that point, dying to His past life.

 

 

He was beginning His public ministry.

 

 

Jesus was declaring that He was dead to any selfishness and existed solely to do the will of Father God.

 

 

Must you be baptized to be saved?  No.  Once you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you are saved.

 

 

43 And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”

 

Luke 23:43

 

 

 

Jesus told this criminal that he will be with Him.  This man was not baptized.

 

 

38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” 39 But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

 John 7:38-39

 

 

 

17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues

 

Mark 16:17

 

 

 

The household of Cornelius became believers, received the Holy Spirit, and began speaking in tongues, before being baptized in water.

 

 

According to Jesus receiving the Holy Spirit happens only to those who are believers, and they are therefore saved.

So, these believers were born again and ready for Heaven, before they were baptized in water.

If any of you want to be baptized and you are staying in Gauteng feel free to contact us.

 

What does it mean to be Born Again?

  • img_1611

What does it mean to be Born Again?  For you to truly get freedom from attacks, you need to understand this first.

The New Birth

1 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”

3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”  4 Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”  5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”  9 Nicodemus answered and said to Him, “How can these things be?”  10 Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things? 11 Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness. 12 If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? 13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the

condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

John 3:1-21

Nicodemus was a theological professor and a member in parliament, he paid his tithe from all his income, he fasted two days a week, he prayed two hours a day.  But look at what Jesus is asking Nicodemus in verse 10. “Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things?

Even in today’s modern world with millions of preachers about 95% of them are not born again and probably does not even know what it means.  This is scary as they are the teachers of the gospel.

It is very easy to say that I believe the Bible. It is very easy to say I know the Bible. It is even easier to say I’m a Christian but are you really a Christian?  Are you 100% sure that you will enter the kingdom of God (Heaven) when your physical body dies.

You might be a very good person doing wonderful deeds for your fellow man but have you really been born again!

Are you a new person in Jesus Christ?

Are you willing to deny yourself and give yourself completely over to Jesus Christ?  Are you willing to let Jesus Christ control your life?

Jesus did not say you ought to be born again He said you have to be born again if you want to enter the kingdom of God.

What Jesus was saying is that it is easy to say I’m a Christian but it is different matter to really know Jesus Christ.

You cannot just do the things to show people you’re a Christian; you need to know Jesus Christ Himself.

Jesus said this because he knows your heart.  Yes Jesus Christ knows every person’s heart.  He knows you say you love Him but He knows that your heart belongs to business or pleasure or even to Satan.

All the sins you’re doing each day comes from within.  It starts from the heart and once it reaches the mind you’re already making plans to fulfill that desire.  That is why God said guard your heart in His word (the Bible).

23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

Proverbs 4:23 (KJ)

There’s a lot of good people supporting the under privilege, but some people are doing it to be seen by others.  God looks at what’s inside your heart.  Even if man lived in paradise, he’ll still have an evil heart.

You can only change this if you give your heart to God to control completely.

Never please people please God.

Born again means to be “born from above.” Nicodemus had a real need. He was hungry to change and he needed a change of his heart – a spiritual transformation.

New birth, being born again, is an act of God whereby eternal life is imparted to the person who believes indicates that “born again” also carries the idea “to become children of God” through trust in the name of Jesus Christ.

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

2 Corinthians 5:17

5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,

Titus 3:5

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead

1 Peter 1:3

29 If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him.

1 John 2:29

9 Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.

1 John 3:9

7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

1 John 4:7

5 Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. 4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

1 John 5:1-4

18 We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.

1 John 5:18

12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

John 1:12-13

Why do you need to be born again?

2 And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,

Ephesians 2:1

To the Romans in Romans 3:23, the Apostle wrote, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, So, a person needs to be born again in order to have their sins forgiven and have a relationship with God.

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

Romans 3:23

How does that come to be?

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Ephesians 2:8-9

When a person is “saved,” he/she has been born again, spiritually renewed, and is now a child of God by right of new birth. Trusting in Jesus Christ, the One who paid the penalty of sin when He died on the cross, is what it means to be “born again” spiritually.

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

2 Corinthians 5:17

If you have never trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, how can you hear the Holy Spirit as He speaks to you?

How will you hear the Holy Spirit when He warns you of danger?

Do you have what it takes to be a born again Christian?

Do you want a personal relationship with Jesus?

Don’t say the prayer just you want “fire protection”.

Become born again because you want to with all your heart.

Will you pray the prayer of repentance and become a new creation in Jesus Christ today?

12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

John 1:12-13

If you are tired of living a life without meaning in a materialistic world that lacks compassion and love, a world that has chosen mammon as it’s god and that will sacrifice anything and anybody to achieve its ultimate goal: “financial freedom”, then please consider the alternative.

Jesus Christ is waiting for you every single day to open up your heart to Him and to invite Him into your life. If you prayed this prayer with a sincere and a true heart – then you can be assured that the Lord has prepared a place for you in heaven.

Once you are ready to take the next step the following prayer will be your ticket to Eternity:

The Prayer that will change Your Eternal Destiny

“Father, I thank You that Jesus died for me. I confess I have broken Your laws. Forgive my sins. I receive the pardon right now. Lord Jesus, come into my life. Give me a new heart with new desires. And by Your Spirit, give me the power to live a life that is pleasing to You. Father please fill me with the Holy Spirit.  Thank you for forgiving me as You have promised. Thank You for the gift of eternal Life.”

Congratulations and welcome to the family of God. No matter what you’ve done in your life, you’ve received a full pardon in God’s eyes. That’s how easy it is for you.

But it was not free – it cost God the life of His beloved Son, Jesus Christ in your place. Just thank Him for loving you so much.

Write this date in your Bible as this is the date the new you were born.

This Chapter is the first Chapter in our book:  Only a Born-Again will enter Heaven.  Are you Ready?

It is so important that we had to add it to the Prayer Academy book as well.

I strongly recommend that you also read my book titled “Only a Born-Again will enter Heaven.  Are you Ready?” as this book will guarantee you that personal relationship with God the Father, God the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ the Son.  After reading this book you will also understand the Godhead (trinity) better.

Need help with your daily prayer?

Some people really do not know how to pray or speak to God.  I decided to explain it as I started.

When you pray, you speak to God. Think of God as your Father (Daddy).

So, when you were little, and you wanted a doll or a car what did you do? You asked your daddy. So, if you were naughty and you know that you did something that you should not have done then you would say: “sorry daddy”. Right?

 

So now start your talk (prayer) to Father God by always asking for Forgiveness of your sins.

 

Then thank Father God, for all He has done for you.  You can start with thanking Him for another beautiful day, for keeping you safe through the night and for your health.  You will start adding as you grow spiritually.

Here is a way of praying for others by using your fingers to trigger you into thinking about different groups of people.

Thumb: Those furthest away – missionaries, persecuted Christians, friends and families overseas.

1st finger: Those people who lead and guide us, pointing the way (ministers, teachers etc.)

2nd finger: The strongest finger – those people with power and responsibility (governments etc.)

Ring finger: Those people we love – family, friends.

Little finger: Those who are ill, weak, infirm, old, poor, helpless…

Whole hand: Pray for yourself finally, offering your hands to God to serve Him as praying and serving hands for all the people you meet.

Before ending the prayer always remember to ask Father God to cover you and your family and belonging with the Blood of Jesus and always put on the Full Armor of God.

Who is the Church?

When answering this Question, I think we need to look at the widely accepted opinion;

 

“God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. 25 Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. Acts 17:24-25

 

We also read in the Bible 

 

Then news of these things came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent out Barnabas to go as far as Antioch. Acts 11:22

Saul was making havoc of the church by persecuting God’s people.  It is clear from the scriptural verse below that Saul did not drag a building like a Temple to prison.

 

Now Saul was consenting to his death

At that time a great persecution arose against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles. 2 And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him. 3 As for Saul, he made havoc of the church, entering every house, and dragging off men and women, committing them to prison. 4 Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word. Acts 8:1-4

 

We read of the church in the house of Priscilla and Aquilla 

 

Greet Priscilla and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus, 4 who risked their own necks for my life, to whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles. 5 Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Greet my beloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia to Christ. Romans 16:3-5

 

Paul gathering the church together at Antioch. 

 

Now when they had come and gathered the church together, they reported all that God had done with them, and that He had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles. Acts 14:27

Clearly from the verse above we can see that the church is not a building.  Is it possible to gather buildings together?

 

Membership in the church is determined by neither people, preacher nor priest or any other 5 fold ministry but by the Lord.

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, Ephesians 4:11-12

…praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved. Acts 2:47

 

So clearly from the verse above you cannot join.

 

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. Romans 1:16

Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4

 

Those who are “the church” are perfectly organized, having Christ as their “head” and a position that is God-ordained. 

 

And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. Ephesians 1:22-23

But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. 1 Corinthians 12:18

 

What spiritual ignorance is shown by any of these who believe they need a human “organizer” or that they can improve upon the work of the infinitely wise and powerful God.

 

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, Ephesians 4:11

They limit and frustrate the work of these men and women when they “call” or “appoint” pastors or teachers of their choice or when a pastor suddenly decides he is now a prophet or an apostle or a bishop. 

Recently, there has been a lot of conflict concerning this matter. As a messenger of the Most High God, I have been instructed to sound the trumpet, and engage the enemy whose goal is to destroy and erase this from the plan of God in the body of Christ! I am not here to entice you with man’s wisdom, but rather to call this nation and the church to repentance!

Organizations have tried to silence the ordinances of God, to pursue their own agendas, and for that, they will face Godly judgement just as I will be judged for my mistakes.

I pray that all will come in humbleness before God, ask God to forgive them and guide them into the truth, His truth.

 

The fivefold ministry is one of the greatest keys to any successful ministry. The ministries, who do not operate in all five, are damaging the growth of the body of Christ!

A ministry who does not acknowledge the entire Fivefold ministry and who does not want Teachers, Evangelists, Prophets and Apostles in their ministry have one or more of the following hidden agendas:

  • They don’t understand each one of these offices.
  • Control issues within the ministry.  The pastor might even have the spirit of Diotrephes.  

When a ministry has the fivefold ministry in operation, that organizations are no longer are in control. The Pastors are no longer in control. God is in control!

 

I am briefly going to explain each office.

 

In Ephesians 4:11, each one of these offices is separated by semi-colons. Because each office separated means that it is exclusive from the others. Notice that Pastors and Teachers are together? Why? Pastors and Teachers belong together. No man is fit to be a Pastor who cannot also teach, and the Teacher needs the knowledge which Pastoral experience gives.

 

Ephesians 4:12 says “For the perfecting of the saints…” This does not mean that the saints cannot reach perfection unless there is a fivefold ministry in the church?  “For the work of the ministry…” This is to perfect the saints so that they can work in the ministry that they’ve been called in!  “For the edifying (building) of the body of Christ;”

 

Apostles pioneer churches (remember who is the church). They build them from the ground up. They establish and restore them. They have special inspiration from God and are given supreme authority over the churches (this is why denominations have ruled them out). True Apostles are accredited by signs and miracles following their ministry (self-proclaimed “Apostles” do not), Apostles have an unlimited commission to preach the Gospel. Apostles oversee and are responsible for every church that they have pioneered.  Now bear in mind that you are the church and not the building you worship in.  God will take an Apostle through all the other offices because they must know and understand what these offices are about in order to teach the body of Christ.  To life a holy life is very important to the Apostle appointed by God, as they never want to disappoint God.

 

God will use Apostles (male and female) and Prophets (male and female) to reveal or confirm a person’s calling.

 

 

To the churches that claim that there cannot be any apostles today.  Think again.  The Apostle Paul was an Apostle almost 20 years after Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven.

to which I was appointed a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. 2 Timothy 1:11

Prophets (male and female) are called by God alone. Prophets work with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

 

Prophets are somewhat on a planet of their own. They are eccentric, somewhat weird to church and society, and are oftentimes abandoned by man because of their being misunderstood by mainstream religious groups.

True Prophets of God are dealt with by God and God alone. They are oftentimes trained in ministry alone, with some guidance by other true Prophets or Apostles appointed by God over them.

False “Prophets” are mainly ‘soothsayers”, often known as a ‘slithering tongued serpent’, tickling the ears to gain your trust. This world is full of them!

True Prophets of God can operate as an Evangelist, Pastor or Teacher. Prophets are also followed by signs and miracles when directed by God to do so. They only speak the Word of God and are assisted by God to carry out the Prophet’s assignment.

A true Prophet of God lives a very holy life.

Apostles and Prophets oftentimes walk together. They are both over the Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher.

The Evangelist draws the crowds and all that matters to them is to save the lost souls. Evangelists travel, and are constantly on the road, except for the time of ‘refreshing’ or encouragement from other ministries within the body of Christ. The Evangelist works hand-in-hand with the Pastor and Teacher. 

A Pastors main job is to “shepherd” the flock.  A true pastor will visit his congregation, do hospital visits.  His “sheep” is very important to him. If you have ever watched the series 7TH Heaven.  Eric Camden, the pastor in this series shows all the qualities of a true pastor.  A pastor will also do a lot of Bible study in order to teach his congregation.

PS:  Your pastors title might be reverend, minister, priest etc.

Teachers teach foundational truths of the Word of God, building the foundation of our faith.  Joyce Meyer is an excellent example of a true teacher.

Once again, this is the order of God:

  1. Apostles
  2. Prophets
  3. Evangelists
  4. Pastors
  5. Teachers

Organizations are formed by man, and not God

Organizations have become man-made empires that have been designed to suppress (control) people

As long as Apostles and Prophets are silenced, then this puts the Pastor the head of the church and not Christ.

This is not about the “power” or position of the calling itself, because the ‘higher’ the calling, the higher the price, the heavier the burden, and the more the sacrifice. That’s just the way it is, trust me! It’s about a true ministry. A ministry without spot or blemish. A ministry that doesn’t experience defeat. A ministry with supernatural POWER! A ministry that is truly called by God Almighty.

Sometimes God takes you through the different callings to teach you.  This happens with prophets and apostles.  God has taken me through all the callings, some longer than others to teach me so that I will be able to teach others.

 

Just in case you’ve wondered.  A Bishop is just an elder over elders.

 

 

This is the only church with divine origin and blessing. It alone can fulfil this prayer of the Lord Jesus Christ for all who believe on Him:

that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. John 17:21

 

All divisions (denominations and sects) show sinful disregard for the will of God and of the “unity of the Spirit” See scripture below.

 

Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 1 Corinthians 1:10

And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. 2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; 3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men? 4 For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not carnal? 1 Corinthians 3:1-4

Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. 1 Corinthians 3:16-17

I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, 2 with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, 3 endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Ephesians 4:1-6

I think that you will now agree with me that we are the church not the building that we worship in. The church is also called the body of Christ.  Unfortunately, the body of Christ is very sick as Christians are working against each other and not together as one body.  The reason for this is pride.  The pastor became too proud and greedy and because of this, souls are being lost.

 

The church is made of people all over the world who have discovered the love of God as demonstrated by Jesus Christ.  So if you read your bible and worship God with a few friends in your back garden or in a field, you and your friends are the church fellowshipping together.
